Review for Dr. Cates

Dr Cates performed a rather extensive surgery removing a tumer and associated resection of the large and small bowels. Additionally, he demonstrated genuine concern for me during my recovery.

Review for Dr. Cates

This was an emergent visit (same day) related to transient symptoms that seemed to mirror an acute vascular incident. The receptionist took the information, Emily the nurse called back promptly and scheduled a same day check of scans. Excellent service!

Dr Cates expksined the results of my scan with knowledge and care. He gave options for my condition. He took the wait and see option and did not just recommend surgery to fix the issue. I appreciated this but also gave me suggestions to watch for complications.

Review for Dr. Cameron

He did a Nissen Fundoplasty (hiatal hernia surgery) and it wasn't successful. It didn't seal off my stomach from my esophagus so I'm still risking esophageal cancer. I have to take two kinds of antacids each day just like I did before the surgery to protect from cancer.
